i have an appointment on weds. morning to get a tooth extracted. I'm one of "those" people who will pass out.... i had a root canal when i was pregnant and passed out for like 5 minutes. Well, long story short, no dental insurance and i asked how much the laughing gas cost.... they said $300 for 30 minutes!!!!! Sooooo thats not gonna happen.... What other choices do I have? I have Vicodin for the pain. So can i take one before i go in? As like a sedative? When i was like 13, the dr gave me a pill to knock me out, do they still have that option???The shot is what freaks me out..... I plan on taking an ipod so i dont have to listen to the scary whistling sounds.
